Another day playing tourist.
We spent the day being taken around Inle lake in a traditional long, narrow boat. The lake is massive and we powered through the waterway with ease passing fishermen who managed to work the nets with their hands and row the boat with one leg, incredible skill. The wetlands around were covered in vegetation and houses built on stilts.
We weren’t alone, there were many tourists, I am concerned at the effect all of these boats will have on the environment as tourist increase and it may turn out to be too crowded.
It’s interesting how the group feels about tourists as we feel we are something different, very funny.
Another good day.
